Cloud Sync

This guide explains about Cloud Sync settings.

Before turning on Cloud Sync feature, the user has to first input and setup all the relevant information.
Firstly, insert your Username , Password, and Branch Code.
If this is your first outlet, "outlet1" will be your branch code.

Then, if the user wishes to use Cloud Loyalty, turn on the switch beside it.
Turning on Cloud Loyalty allows you to share customer information across each outlet.
Your customer would be able to earn rewards from outlet 1 and redeem it at outlet2.
For the initial setup, please contact us.

Sync Interval - Configure the interval to sync to MobiPOS CloudSync automatically.
Users can choose between 1 minute, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour or to sync manually as shown below.
We encourage users to set their Sync Interval to 1 minute.

Do note that using the Sync Manually option, user has to sync manually each time when there's a new transaction or changes.
To sync manually, tap on "Sync Now" at the Manual Sync section.

Manual Sync allows user to sync even if Sync Interval is configured.
Manual Sync can be used if user has updated the stocks and wishes to update to MobiPOS CloudSync immediately without waiting for the interval.

Sync Status shows the last successful sync date and time.

Re-Sync allows users to reset & re-sync.
This action clears all the information that is synced to the cloud previously, then replaces it with information on this iPad.
Use this function only if you are sure all your data like menu and report is on this iPad.

Notice is shown if there is any announcement regarding Cloud Sync from MobiPOS.

Restore from Cloud does the opposite of Re-Sync.
It retrieves information that is on the cloud and restore into the iPad.

Use "Restore from Cloud" when the iPad has no data but cloud has it.
Use "Re-Sync" when iPad has all the data, but cloud has none.
Check your menu and generate a few recent date reports on Cloud and iPad to see who has the latest updated data.

Do note that if the switch for Cloud Sync is disabled, no data will be synced to MobiPOS Cloud.
